for president obama. he debated john mccain who is an american hero. and senator obama served with senator mccain. even though he didn't agree barack obama had a very high degree of respect for john mccain looking across that stage. i fear -- he lacks that looking at romney. might not only he as he underestimate governor romney but may show -- this is a huge ri risk, he may show some of that contempt gore showed for bush and that's a huge risk for the president. stick his chin up and look down his nose at you if he thinks -- you are beneath him. if you see that body language -- >> i think that's a real danger. i think that there is not a lot of love lost between these two. i don't think that obama likes romney. think that's why he has gotten so competitive in the election. if you have that disdain coming out in the debate it can hurt obama. people obama is a likable guy, nicer guy. they don't think romney is a nice guy. if romney can equalize the like built zbap i thigap it will hel >> what he did effectively with newt gingrich during the republican debates get under his skin, how -- president ha

early in ohio 2008 they favored barack obama over john mccain by nearly 60/40. so early voting was a great thing for the democratic side the last time barack obama ran for president. if you're a republican you can see the problem. when the republican party subsequently took over control of state government in ohio, they moved to shut down as much early voting as they could. ohio republicans first tried to cut early voting in half. democrats were able to block them on that so then they came up with a plan where only republican leaning counties would have weekend and week night early voting but democratic leaning counties would not have those hours. that was subtle. they didn't get away with that either. finally they tried to settle on all the counties in the state having the same early voting hours but early voting would stop throughout the state days sooner than it usually did. the last three days before the election including the all important last sunday before the election when african-american churches in particular typically organized their souls to the polls car pool trip

, it sounds very different than the barack obama that ran against john mccain. they've got to run against -- because if they compare those positions that romney has now, the way he performed in the debate the other night and compare that to barack obama's record, then we're going to be inaugurating president romney in november or january. >> but did you just say that mitt romney very specifically said one thing during his primary and something very different after the nomination? is that what you just said? >> what i said was, i think they're the same comments made to different audiences. that's an important distinctions. look, i'll be honest with you. i did not vote for mitt romney in the primary. mitt romney is not as conservative as i believe i would like our next president to believe. having said that, the mitt romney you saw on the stage performed so well because that is who mitt romney is. he's a center right kind of candidate, a very smart technocrat, and if you look at the positions he's taking, you can't confuse the comments about massachusetts legislature and say these are radic

mike murphy, who was with john mccain in 2000 and then with mitt romney the last time around, john mccain -- mike murphy i thought said it well last night that mitt romney was better than his campaign, president obama was not as good as his campaign. you know, what i -- what bothered me the most is that president obama let mitt romney get away with lie after lie after lie. because it's not that mitt romney always told the truth. he didn't. he told lie after lie after lie but the president didn't challenge him. didn't rebut those lies. $716 billion at least three times mitt romney said that president obama cut $716 billion out of medicare. i want to save medicare. he cut $716 billion out of medicare. that went right out of benefits. and he kept saying that over and over and over again. you know that's not true. i know that's not true. all of the fact checkers have said that's not true. president obama did not say last night it's not true. and if you don't rebut it, you let it stand so people watching are going

around the economy, like in 2008. when the economy imploded, john mccain's advisers say his campaign collapsed with it and never recovered. historians say for an october surprise to have an 11th hour impact, it has to feed into a narrative that already exists, whether carter's ineffectiveness or mccain. >> it's not yur reek a. this is a so surprising, so amazing, but rather people nod, yes. this is where we thought things were going. >> it's possible we may have already seen this election year's october surprise. maybe it was how the candidates reacted to tragedy in libya and the broader unrest in the middle east or mitt romney's infamous 47% remarks. or perhaps one or both of the campaigns is holding out damaging information about the other. or there will be an unfor foreseen event on the world stage. it wouldn't be an october surprise if we knew. >>> dana bash. >>> this is a live picture from the debate location in denver. you can see the podiums are set up on the stage. the seats ready to be filled. once again, the first presidential debate is this wednesday night. tomorrow. live
